Virgin Media Users Spotted Speed Testing 200Mb+ Connections

By Gary Cutlack on at

Virgin Media could well be about to upgrade its customers to some new and unprecedented fibre broadband speed levels, with speed test results from Virgin's fibre users appearing to show that some testers are already enjoying early access to download speeds in excess of 200Mb.

According to speed tests monitored by the Think Broadband tool, a handful of Virgin fibre customers are now recording max download speeds vastly superior to the network's supposed 152Mb limit, heralding a future upgrade that could see users getting shoved on to super-superfast (AKA ultra-megafast) connection tiers that include 100Mbps, 200Mbps and even 300Mbps allowances to potentially rival BT's most advanced FTTP options.

You'd think people testing exciting new things would be told not to stick their data on publicly available speed test maps, but apparently not. [Think Broadband]
